If the first step in the solution of the equation -x + 6 = 5 - 3x is "subtract 5," then what should the next step be? If the first step in the solution of the equation 2x - 8 = 5x + 3 is "subtract 2x," then what should the next step be? 13x + 7 = 5x - 20 Solve for XAnswer by brucewill(101)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!It really doesn't matter the order you do things in; however, in the first example, if you subtract 10 from both sides, you get: Next, I would add 7x to both sides: All that matters, is you eventually "isolate" the variable on one side, and the result will be on the other side of the "=".
